OK, here are the mini's. The leather handled one is 6 5/8" not counting the loop. The ivory handled one is 6 1/4". The leather one is marked like the 2 large fights and the ivory is not.

The ivory handled knife I bought from a man whose Dad was a doctor in Neb. that treated Richtig before he died and the family gave the doctor the knife. He had used it as a letter opener for years till he passed and his son sold it to me. The wife of the doctor used an aluminum handled one in her garden to plant flowers and bulbs!!! It has been looked at by Harlan S. and he said that it was made by Richtig and that he has seen many little ones like this one.

Dimitri if you like the feel of the large fighters you need to handle a leather handled Mini they are just great!!! He was a master at making knives.

Have you ever held a Baxter from Boston?? Like I said earlier in the post, I have one coming in the mail that I need info on??

Here is another one I picked up. It is definatly a Baxter knife, see the knife with a copy of Silvey's book, but it is marked J & D Miller NY. On the top side of the handle is stamped Erwin K.Simon 12157342. Not sure what that refers to. Service number maybe?? I tried looking the name up on the internet with no luck.

I believe you're correct about that being a service number. Here's a list of WWII Army enlistees from Kings County, NY and though your Erwin K.Simon is not among them, his service number fits right in for number of digits and approximate sequence of digits. If you get interested enough, you can get all releasable information on him through the Freedom of Information Act by sending a query to the records center in St. Louis, MO. Let me know if you want to do that and I'll help you get the necessary paperwork started.

Thanks for the offer to help but I am going to be listing the knife in my store and maybe the new owner will do it. Below is a Link to another Miller knife.

Well, as usual, I'm late getting to another great thread.

Here are some Robeson WWII straight knives that I used to own. I sold them all on Ebay last winter.

First is an unused Navy Mark II.

Second is an Army marked knife.

Third is a Navy Mark I.

Fourth is a USMC marked knife. This knife was an incomplete restoration that had a great blued blade. I sold it to a Marine vet that can redo the restoration work. He was pleased to get it.

I had and sold a very nice blade marked, but not dated, M-3, but I cannot find the photos. I must have deleted them. It was the first one I sold.

Hi Bob: I think you mentioned a Remington circle straight line stamp that I had. I thing I traded it to Phil(Great Scout) a couple of years ago.Good to hear from you.
Charlie: Those are really great Knives. My latest acquisitions are an early pinned round tang Robeson, it and the sheath marked USN Mark 2, A KA-BAR USMC and a Pal RH 36 utility knife. The Robeson is in excellent condition. The utility and the KA-BAR are the only original leather sheaths I have. Currently I can only fill one of the Holsters with a 1911, still looking for three more.
